Florence Apartment

by al_mary

Greetings from the USA,

First we would like to say thank you for
the replies we got on our last post about
Florence, the replies were helpful.

After a little more research, and checking
into the old town area, I think we have found
a decent apartment at a decent price.

Is anyone familiar with: "Repubblica Square"?
Is that a pretty good area to stay in?

The apartment we found is as follows:

Tourist House Ricci
Apartment Repubblica
Piazza della Repubblica, 3

They say it is about fifty meters form the Duomo.

Is that considered in the old town, and would
that be a good central location to see the sights
in Florence from while we are there?

Is that a pretty safe area to be in as long as we
take all the normal precautions. Is there alot to
do in the area of the Duomo?

If possible, we would like to meet local VTer's who
live in Florence while we are there. If you are a
local and would like to meet up while we are there,
please send us an e-mail.

Thank you for your advice .....

Happy Travels,
Al and Mary / USA

Put 'Piazza della Repubblica Florence' into google and then click on maps (top left).

You'll see exactly where it is.

It's certainly ideally placed within the historical centre of Florence, and an easy walk to anywhere within that area. Not quite sure what you mean by 'do a lot' but you will find umpteen historical sites (churches, the Pitti Palace, the Ponte Vecchio, the Medici chapels etc etc), restaurants, markets and shops within walking distance and the bus stations (local for Fiesole, SITA for Siena) and railway station (Santa Maria Novella for Pisa, Lucca etc) are also within easy walking distance.

Nowhere in central Florence is what I would consider 'unsafe' in any way. Just use normal city common sense.

the location of this apartment is pretty much dead center, on the same square as one of florence's most prestigious hotels.

by rkearns

florence is such a small and walkable city (i didn't say navigable's map looks like a spider web). but yes, the duomo is smack dab in the middle of everything and you can walk to all the major mmuseums, cathedrals, eateries, night walks and historical points of interest. you've got yourself a prime location.

Hi Al & Mary, I've stayed at a hotel in the vicinity of Piazza della Repubblica and its a great location, very central to the historical centre.

Now you have the accommodation sorted I suggest you look at the many VT Travelguides and you will be amazed at what Florence has to offer. I have visited Florence 3 times and still have not seen all the places I am interested in.

I will definitely give one recommendation though. Spend a couple of hours if you can at the Basilica di Santa Croce which is walking distance from the Duomo. This is, for me, one of the most fascinating churches in Europe and I make a bee line for its interior each time I am in Florence.

Re: Florence Apartment

I notice you have information on sites in Florence listed on your own travel pages. Have you been there previously? I assumed from your posts that you are a first time visitor. If not, it wont take long to get your bearings in relation to the area around the Duomo. Thats the great thing about historical cities. They dont change!!

Re: Florence Apartment

by al_mary

Thanks for the replies, it is appreciated.
We have been to Florence once before, but only
for a couple of days, and cannot remember too much
about the area. We got in at night and basically
had a little over one day to look around. We look
forward to returning and spending some time to
enjoy all the sites this time.

Bancomats - ATMS - cash dispensers

Florence is the city of arts,...

by wadekorzan

Florence is the city of arts, culture, and the Renaissance. There is so much to see--outdoors and at the museums--that it is overhwhelming. keep in mind for the museums that most are closed on Mondays and that if you want to see the real David, you should plan correctly. this is a copy on Piazza della Signoria in front of the Palazzo Vecchio.


by margaretvn

Go and visit Siena, it is well worth it.
This is a lovely city where the main roads of the old centre fan out from the Piazza del Campo. This Piazza is known as one of Italy's loveliest and is on the site of the old ROman forum. It was the cities main marketplace suring much of the cities early history. In 1293 Siena's ruling body (the Council of Nine) started to aquire land with the idea of making a large civic piazza and it was then that the present piazza started to take shape. The paving which is red brick was started in 1327 and completed in 1349. It has 9 distinctive segments which reflect the Council of Nine and their authority but also to symbolise the folds of the Madonná cloak. The piazza has always been the centre of city life and even today it is the site of the twice yearly Palio festiival. This festival is centred around bareback horse racing.

'Unofficial Street Markets"

by mariocibelli about Black Market Goods on the Street

All over Florence you will see impromptu markets popping up from one minute to the next. THe mearhandise sold is naturally black market goods and the peddlers are invariably immigrants from Sri Lanka, Morocco, Senegal (especially) and China. You can find the following items:

++Latest DVD's and CD's - they will let you try the CD in a CD player if you have one.
++Designer handbags, wallets and accessories
++Those terrible bouncing Mickey Mouses that move to the music
Grasshoppers made from reeds (Chinese only)
++Name written in Chinese
++Pictures painted with spraypaint (poor guy destroying his braincells for a couple of Euros)
++African handicrafts
++Eturscan art reproductions (hard to find) Everything is negotiable.

First pizza in Florence

by lina112 about restaurante Giardino di Barbano

After arriving to the hotel and unpacking, came time to have some dinner. We asked to recepcionist for places to eat and recomended one close to the hotel, we went but they did not have pizzas so we began to walk in via nazionale and arrived to piazza independenza and found this restaurant, after reading the menu showed on the front door we were convenced to have dinner there. We were seated in the beautiful patio inside the restaurant. The menu is very complete and you can choose between their pizzas, pastas, salads and meats. We had the quatro stazione and toscana pizza very popular in the area. The staff was very helpful and service very good.

Note: Coperto 1 euro

Después de llegar al hotel y deshacer el equipaje nos llegó la hora de cenar algo. Preguntamos en recepción y el recepcionista nos recomendó un sitio cerca del hotel, fuimos pero no tenian pizzas así que andando por la via nazionale llegamos a la plaza de la independencia donde encontramos este restaurante y tras leer el menú que muestra en la entrada nos convenció y entramos, nos sentaron en el patio interior que tienen y que es precioso. La carta es muy extensa y puedes elegir entre ensaldas, pizzas, pastas y carnes. Tomamos pizza cuatro estaciones y pizza toscana muy popular en la zona. El personal fue muy atento y el servicio muy bueno.

Nota: Coperto 1 Euro
